Dogs accepted on a leash. The park is enclosed by a wall built in the middle of the 15th century by the lords of Rieux-Rochefort, owners of the military castle of Rochefort-en-Terre. Your guide will tell you the history of this 11km wall. A few centuries later, in 1842, the Compagnie des Chemins de Fer de Paris à Orléans took over this site as a concession to produce the sleepers they needed. After felling the oaks, its director Mr. Delaitre, a polytechnician, discovered numerous prospects and plenty of water. His classmate Alphand, in 1835, helped him transform the site into an English-style landscaped park, they created a hydraulic route of more than 2 km to feed a waterfall and pools up to a pond, a romantic place for walks. In 1891, François Forest, great-grandfather of the family of the current owners, bought the property and decided to develop it. He developed his agro-industrial potential by creating a dairy and a churn whose butter production inspired Mr. Bridel who resold it under his brand. The dairy was the center of an ecosystem. The kiosk is placed at the edge of the pond, the central point of several perspectives which characterize this park. In 1999, the Park received the Lyonnaise des Eaux Prize, in 2001 the Historial Garden Foundarion DH Prize and in 2022 the French Heritage Society DH & VMF Prize. Restorations are constantly being undertaken.
